you think at the beginning i will say, vice president joe biden, and paul ryan? there was no real agreement. >> have either of these political parties ask you to do something other than that. >> that was the only contact i had with anybody and frankly i just put it out of my head. it wasn't i fought -- they ask me to do this. >> it did anyone attempt to influence you? >> and there was no influence -- i never had contact with the campaign and you had the hardest in that you were covering this. i was off in the corner. >> this was not a new experience for you. it was the third time. this time you ask for cbs not to have you report on the other debates because you wanted to avoid even an appearance. of bias. so why that attitude of the first time and not the first to? >> what is different is the scrutiny was so intense. there used to be about -- 10 people that wrote about these things. another are 700, -- -- now there is 700 that read about it. >>>> we will get to that. >> just to give you the example. nobody holds back anything anymore. i can remember when people would write letters

-- nominee. guest: joe biden may be accelerating that process. maybe it is already starting. host: does president obama have to choose because of the divided congress? does he have to choose immigration and gun control? guest: there are all kinds of things that congress must do in terms of spending. we have the sequestration, and expiring continuing resolution that is funding the government, and the debt ceiling. they will consume congress because republicans and democrats do not agree on how to resolve them. he is going to leave the president tied up. you have to do with these things. immigration and gun control and gay marriage our wish list items. immigration is a big issue. that will be very hard to move something that is progressive or liberal with a divided congress. we all know that an assault weapon ban will not get to the house. it is possible they will get from checks. it may be scaled back urgent of what the president talked about yesterday. in full-scale he will not he able get an assault weapons ban through. that probably will not happen. the spending issues, he will

the shadows. its passage led by then-senator joe biden, was a watershed moment in our history. in the years since, we have come together in a bipartisan way to re-authorize and expand the reach of this law. now we must do it again. the last congress had the opportunity to take this action. the senate passed a strong bill with a bipartisan vote of 68-31. 68-31. yet house republicans refused to bring the senate's bipartisan bill to the floor, leaving millions without a critical line of defense against domestic violence. this congress has a chance to correct the mistake without further delay. today with 158 co-sponsors and counting, that's in the house, including every woman democrat in the house, democrats are re-introducing the re-authorization of the violence against women act which would expand protections to lgbt, immigrants and native americans. this has bipartisan support in the senate, including key women senators. it is bipartisan. and time for the house republicans to join suit and join the senate in a bipartisan backing of this measure. failure to enact this bill would deprive

is always going to be a vulnerable part of the budget. i think he recalled joe biden saying, i think he says the only problem that program they would cut would be foreign aid. tell us about how we could put that one on a sustainable basis politically. how can you persuade the public that it is being used efficiently? >> i think the key word here is efficiently. we have to demonstrate that the money that is -- the taxpayer money that is being sent overseas for foreign aid is number one, and our strategic national interest, and we have to articulate what that interest is. secondly, i think we have to go beyond just sending the money so that he gets deposited and whoever leads that country's swiss bank account. we have to demonstrate that that money is being effectively used to address certain things. george w. bush, i give him significant credit for the that far -- because they have set a certain standard, that these are our values, these are our standards, if you are able to enforce and implement those standards, we will provide you that support. there are some very good success stori
